Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

In a Nutshell

Stunning depth and concentration from this leading Montalcino estate.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant ruby in colour with a juicy red cherry and ripe berry character with layers of sweet spices. Silky mouthfeel and a full body, ripe tannins with a very long, lingering finish.

Production Notes

The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunches are pressed. The wine is fermented in stainless steel at 28° for 18 days. After fermentation, the juice is matured in French barriques, 20% new and 80% first and second passage, for 24 months before bottling. After bottling, the wine spends a further 12 months in bottle before release.

Producer - Castiglion del Bosco

Castiglion del Bosco, one of the founding members of the ‘Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino’ established in 1967, starting producing wine in 1954. Purchased by Massimo Ferragamo in 2003, Castiglion del Bosco has been revitalised, after major investment in the vineyards and winery, and has now been restored to its position as a leading Brunello estate. The estate is located in the Val d’Orcia National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, to the north west of Montalcino, near Buonconvento. Its isolated location, away from other producers and sources of pollution, makes organic cultivation possible.
